29 August 2006 | by AbhimanSee all my reviews

What do I say ... To start with Kamalji is in it!! and boy has he done a good job!!! the movie is technically brilliant!! well written,edited,shot and executed!! u couldn't ask for more!! kudos to Gautam on a fantastic job ..though I've seen several English serial killer movies , this one is awesome for a Tamil movie ... truly Kamal is India's Al Pacino and Gautam is Michael Mann in the making !!! Credit goes to the lyricist and music director for good songs!!

All in all a racy thriller with all the ingredients to watch it over n over ....

P.S: i have already seen it thrice in the theaters in its first four days and I cant wait to watch it again!!
